2 out of 5 eggsSolid USB-2

Pros: Easy install. Good USB-3 speeds when it worked. Reliable and fast USB-2.

Cons: USB-3 is occasional rather than typical. Often doesn't recognize USB-3 external HDD until connected via USB-2 cable.

Other Thoughts: I use this card together with a USB-3 external HDD for video backup purposes - most file transfers are larger than 100MB. As I expected, I had to install driver software with this hardware - the process was pretty easy.

The card worked most of the time when I first installed it, but it was temperamental - sometimes great speeds that were almost that of my eSATA-connected ext HDD. Other times, speeds looked more like USB-2.

Recently when I connect to the external HDD, Windows fails to see the drive at all via USB-3. I connected the ext HDD using a USB-2 cable to this card and the drive reappeared as a USB-2 drive. Thinking the USB-3 cable was maybe bad, I replaced it with a known good one, but again Windows failed to recognize the drive until I connected via USB-2.

I'm disappointed with the poor reliability of the card. I want to simply connect my backup drive and hit the backup button and go, but all too often I find myself troubleshooting rather than doing work with this thing. It's just too temperamental for me.

5 out of 5 eggsBest USB 3.0 card available!

Pros: True USB 3.0 speeds. Outer and inner USB 3.0 ports. All devices instantly recognized. Driver/firmware easy to install (once you find them). Very high quality build, and yet it's almost always on sale cheap! Works in any PCIe slot, not just the x1 slots.

Cons: The Molex power plug, although necessary makes for an unsightly picture in a clean, cable-managed case.

Other Thoughts: Get the drivers.updated firmware from the HooToo website. After a restart, you'll never have any trouble. These are reliable. I've used 4 other types, and HooToo is my go-to brand for USB 3.0 cards forever now!

1 out of 5 eggsShoddy VIA chipset. Complete waste of time.

Pros: Comes with half-height adapter.

Cons: I installed this on an ASUS P6T6 WS Revolution motherboard running Windows 7 x64. It has been a solid system for many years and still performs well. Now I wanted to upgrade it to USB 3.0.

Unfortunately, when the card was installed, my system locked up shortly after boot. Furthermore, none of the drivers--from the CD, the HooToo website, and the newest VL805-Q6 from VIA--would install unless the card was present.

I managed to stop the lockups by setting a Group Policy: gpedit.msc > Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > System > Device Installation > Device Installation Restrictions, and adding PCI\VEN_1106&DEV_3483 (this USB card). That stopped my system from trying to access the device and thus lockup or crash/reboot.

Despite the group policy, my system kept trying to install a new PCI-to-PCI Bridge device whenever this USB card was installed. Hardware ID indicated this was actually the nVidia NF200 bridge chip on my motherboard, despite having all my motherboard drivers already installed for many years. I could not find NF200 drivers online, but upgrading to the latest GeForce driver (even though I was only 1 version behind) seemed to resolve this. However, I don't believe the GeForce contains NF200 drivers, so maybe this card just triggered the bridge and drivers I already had installed?

Regardless, I was now able to finally install this card's drivers. All total over 2 days, I spent 14 hours installing and uninstalling and reinstalling the various driver versions, manually deleting the installed drivers because multiple incompatible versions running on the system, one brief moment where the card could see a USB drive but not a card reader then failed again on reboot, and several BSOD on boot requiring me to boot from CD and delete ViaHub3.sys just to get back into my system.

I finally gave up.

Other Thoughts: I went back to NewEgg, ordered a USB 3,0 card with an Etron EJ188 chip instead (SYBA SY-PEX20140), installed the new card, installed the drivers, up and running with USB 3.0 in about 5 minutes.

Avoid the pathetic VIA SuperSpeed VL805-Q6 chipset!!!

1 out of 5 eggsHooToo HT-PC002

Pros: none for this particular card

Cons: Useless because installation CD does not work. No driver, just installer program. Downloaded driver from HooToo website can't be opened by Windows 7.

Other Thoughts: I have one HooToo HT-PC200 that works properly in another computer, but this unit is zilch!

4 out of 5 eggsDecent card with horrible bracket

Pros: - Average transfer speeds of 60 MB/s.
- Consistent speeds.
- internal 19 Pin USB 3.0 header
- 2 USB 3.0 ports
- Works fine
- Shipping time was acceptable.

Cons: - Horrible bracket. I had to bent it to make the bracket fit without leaving a gaping hole in my case. Other option would be to drill a new hole on the side of the bracket

Other Thoughts: I hope the card lasts. This is my first HooToo product.

5 out of 5 eggspci-e add on card

Pros: Excellent does everything as stated. Used the 20 pin connector
to power up hub on card reader. My Asus MB P6x58d-e
did not come the a 20 pin connector on the board. I ended up with 6 additional USB 3.0 ports.

Cons: None so far...........

Other Thoughts: needed both Molex & Sata power cables to get everything working. Very pleased........

4 out of 5 eggsgood usb3 card for the money

Pros: I have not fully tested the max transfer speed of this card, but it definitely runs faster than USB2. The only limitation that I have experienced is due to the read/write speed of the flash drive I plugged into it. transferring to an actual hard drive using a USB3 external case seems pretty fast.

Cons: none. good price, easy to install, decent transfer speeds

1 out of 5 eggsFatal Flaw - usb mouse nonfunctional

Pros: Works with flash drives, etc

Cons: Does not work with a usb wireless mouse.
The cursor sticks for almost two seconds. This should not happen in a correctly designed board. As a result, I suspect there may be other issues that have not surfaced resulting from this flaw. (I have seen this before, as I have done hardware debugging for a BIOS company).

5 out of 5 eggsGet USB 3.0 Speeds on older hardware

Pros: Works exactly as advertised! Small card, easy install, allows use of USB 3.0 devices on older hardware. Can't go wrong if you're looking to add USB 3.0 support to an older machine.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Does require a molex connector and drivers for use with Windows 7
